Just a few days after the Epic Games Store sale brought us some Epic titles for macOS, you can now scoop even more cheap games in the Steam Winter sale. 

Running from December 21 to Jan 4th, 10 am PT, there are a ton of great games that macOS users can buy and enjoy in this year's sale. With the advent of Apple silicon, the M3 chip, and devices like Apple's best MacBook, the M3 Max MacBook Pro, gaming on a Mac has never been more fun or more viable. Some people say there aren't good games to play on Mac, but this sale proves otherwise. 

If you head to either the Steam app on your Mac or Steam's online store, you can head to the categories banner and filter by macOS. Steam is promoting the sale so it will show a vast array of discounted titles to begin with. Here are some of my favorites.

macOS games you should buy in the Steam Winter Sale 

  • Baldur's Gate III - GOTY BG3 is just 10% off but if you've been waiting for a discount, now's the time to grab it
  • Lies of P - Another recent 2023 title with rave reviews and a 20% discount, now just $47.99
  • Dave the Diver - this iconic RPG is just $15.99, now 20% off
  • Total War: Warhammer III - the third installment from the acclaimed strategy series needs beefier hardware, but is half price, now just $29.99
  • Stardew Valley - if you don't have Apple Arcade, this is a steal at just $10
  • Sid Meier's Civilization VI Anthology - this anthology is normally $209, but is now just $25
  • Disco Elysium - PC Gamer's number one PC game is 75% off right now, just $9.99. 

The Steam Winter Sale is honestly pretty overwhelming, but that means there's a game and a bargain for everyone. So whether you've got an M1 MacBook Air or an all-powerful Mac Studio, take a look and treat yourself.
